The Borough of Swarthmore is situated southwest of 
Philadelphia on the Central Division of the Philadelphia, 
Wilmington and Baltimore Railway. It is eleven miles dis- 
tant from Broad Street Station, with which it is connected 
by frequent trains ; it is also connected with Philadelphia by 
two trolley lines. 

The College buildings and the campus occupy a com- 
manding position. The view includes many miles of the 
Delaware River, whose nearest point is about four miles 
distant. The College property comprises over two hundred 
acres of land, including a large tract of woodland and the 
beautiful rocky valley of Crum Creek. 

The College was founded in 1864 through the efforts of 
-members of the Religious Society of Friends, and for the 
purpose of securing to the youth of the Society an oppor- 
tunity for higher educational training under the guarded su- 
pervision and care of those of their own religious faith. 
Other applicants are admitted upon the same terms as 
Friends, and nothing of a sectarian character appears in the 
instruction or in the management of the College. 

The intention of its founders was to make the promotion 
of Christian character the first consideration, and to provide 
opportunities for liberal culture while maintaining a high 
standard of scholarship. These aims have been faithfully 
-observed in the administration of the institution. 


Parrish Hall, 348 feet in length, is a massive stone 
structure, the central portion of which is separated from the 
two wings by firc-proof compartments. The central build- 



ing is five stories in height, and with an extension at the rear 
provides for assembly room, lecture rooms, museum, library, 
reading room, parlors, dining hall, etc. The wings are four 
stories high. The ground floors are devoted to lecture and 
recitation rooms; the remaining floors in the east wing con- 
tain the dormitories of the women students, and in the west 
wing those of the men students. The Dean and several in- 
structors and matrons reside in the building. 

Science Hall is a two-story stone building with base- 
ment, 162 by 64 feet, devoted to the departments of Chem- 
istry, Physics, and Engineering. It contains, besides lec- 
ture and recitation rooms, electrical, physical, engineering, 
and chemical laboratories; machine shop, and draughting 
rooms; foundry, forge, and wood-working rooms; engine 
and boiler rooms. All departments are well equipped, and 
new apparatus and machinery are added as occasion de- 

The Swarthmore College Astronomical Observatory is es- 
pecially arranged for purposes of instruction, and contains 
an equipment suitable both for class work and the prosecu- 
tion of research. This includes a transit of three-inch aper- 
ture, an equatorial telescope of six-inch aperture, with mi- 
crometer and spectroscope attachments ; a chronograph and 
chronometer, mean-time and sidereal clocks, and a reference 
library. Connected with the Observatory is the local Signal 
Service Station of the State Weather Bureau, fully provided 
with the necessary meteorological apparatus. The latest 
addition to the building accommodates a seismograph of the 
most approved construction, which records by photographic 
process any vibration of the crust of the earth. 

Other buildings upon the campus are the Meeting-house, 
Somerville Hall (the gymnasium for the women students), 
the JVm. J. Hall Gymnasium (for the men students), the 
President's House, the Benjamin West House (birthplace of 


Benjamin West, P. R. A., erected in 1724), Cunningham 
House (the residence of the Professor of Astronomy and 
Mathematics), the necessary farm buildings, etc. 

Parrish Hall, Science Hall, and the two gymnasiums are 
heated by steam from a central plant. A new heating sys- 
tem for the dormitories in Parrish Hall was recently in- 
stalled; it consists of two 72-inch fans at the extreme ends 
of the building, which force the air over coils of steam pipe 
and through conduits accurately graduated in size, to the 
various rooms, thus insuring proper heat and ventilation. 


The daily sessions of the College are opened with an as- 
semblage of students and instructors for the reading of the 
Bible, or for other suitable exercises, which are preceded 
and followed by a period of silence. The students attend 
Meeting on First-day mornings, with the College officials 
and Friends of the neighborhood. By these means, and par- 
ticularly by individual influence, and by the constant effort 
to maintain in the institution a spirit in harmony with the 
purpose of its founders, it is believed that a proper care is 
exercised to mould the characters of the students in con- 
formity with Christian standards. 


Swarthmore, as a co-educational institution, undertakes 
to provide College life in a home setting; to supply an at- 
mosphere in which manly and womanly character may 
develop naturally and completely. It provides that freedom 
which places upon each individual the responsibility of self- 
control, demanding the right exercise of his judgment, 
while making provision for the correction of errors, sup- 
plementing his judgment and will, when necessary, by the 
direction of those in whom his confidence may be justly 


placed. The students meet in the dining-hall as in their 
homes, and for a social hour in the reception parlor before 
evening work begins. There are other social occasions in 
the class receptions that occur during the year, and the 
more public College receptions to which friends of the insti- 
tution are invited. This intercourse of the students is under 
the care of the Dean and her assistants, and it is the aim of 
the College to make it a means of social culture. 


The Wm. J. Hall Gymnasium for the men students, 
erected in 1899, is supplied with a new and complete outfit of 
apparatus after the Sargent System, and affords facilities 
for the required class and individual work, as well as for 
various in-door games. The Somerville Gymnasium for the 
women students was erected through the efforts of the 
Somerville Literary Society. It is furnished with ap- 
paratus adapted to the Swedish System. A statement of 
methods and requirements in the department of Physical 
Training will be found on page 80. 

The extensive and beautiful grounds invite to out-door 
exercise, which is encouraged in every reasonable way. 
Whittier Field, the athletic ground for young men, provides 
a quarter-mile cinder track, a well-graded field for athletic 
sports, and seats for spectators. Upon the campus are 
facilities for tennis, golf, basket-ball, and other out-door 
recreations for both sexes. Cross-country running, bicycle 
riding, and skating on Crum Creek are favorite forms of 


Three literary societies are maintained by the students: 
the Delphic and the Eunomian by the men, the Somerville by 
the women. Regular meetings are held for literary and 


Other exercises, which afford opportunity to acquire skill in 
parliamentary practice and in debate. They are regarded as 
valuable auxiliaries in the work of the College. Each so- 
ciety has, under the management of its own members, but 
accessible to all students, a library and a reading room 
containing periodicals and daily papers. The total number 
of books in these libraries is nearly four thousand. 

The Joseph Leidy Scientific Society has for its object to 
keep in touch with the results of modern investigation in 
Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Engineering. 
At its meetings, held monthly, announcements of recent 
discoveries are made by the various instructors, and their 
meaning and importance are briefly discussed. Papers are 
also prepared and read by the student members. 

The Szvarthmore Audubon Club is designed to promote 
interest in the study and protection of our native birds. The 
use of the camera in securing good pictures of live birds 
and their nests is a very desirable aid in the pursuit of the 
study. The region about Swarthmore, especially the 
wooded ravine through which Crum Creek flows, affords 
unusual opportunities for observation. In a walk of eight 
miles along this stream fifty-eight different varieties of birds 
have been noted, most of them being species nesting in the 

Seminars are held in the departments of English, His- 
tory and Economics, and Latin. Statements concerning 
their work may be found under the respective departments. 

The Cercle Franfais holds weekly meetings and is open 
to all students in the French Department after the middle of 
the first year. Its object is to afford increased opportunities 
for acquiring a practical knowledge of the French language. 

The Deiitschcr Vcrein holds weekly sessions for the pur- 
pose of affording its members a greater ease and facility in 
expressing themselves in idiomatic German. Students are 


thus brought into more positive acquaintance with German 
customs, amusements, music, and literature. 

The Swarthmore Young Friends' Association meets 
monthly in the College; it is open to students, members of 
the Faculty, and others interested in the testimonies and ac- 
tivities of the Society of Friends. 

The Athletic Association is an organization of the men 
students for the encouragement of physical culture and 
athletic sports. 

The Girls' AtJiletic Club is a similar organization of the 
women students. 

Two periodicals are published by the students under 
the supervision of the Faculty. The Phoenix, a semi- 
monthly, is devoted to the interests of the College com- 
munity and of the Alumni; the Halcyon is published an- 
nually by the Junior Class. 


The Libraries of the College collectively contain 22,100 
bound volumes, as follows: 

The General Library 15,600 

Literary Societies' Libraries 3,95o 

Friends' Historical Library 2,550 

The Edgar Allen Brown Fund, established by his family 
in memory of Edgar Allen Brown, of the Class of 1890, and 
the Alumni Fund, are at present the chief sources of income 
for increasing the collection in the General Library. 

Friends' Historical Library, founded by the late Anson 
Lapham, of Skaneateles, N. Y., contains a valuable collec- 
tion of Friends' books, photographs of representative 
Friends, and manuscripts relating to the Society and its his- 
tory. This collection is stored in a fire-proof apartment, and 


it is hoped that Friends and others will deem it a secure 
place in which to deposit books and other material in their 
possession which may be of interest in connection with the 
history of the Society. Such contributions are solicited, 
and should be addressed to Friends' Historical Library, or 
to Arthur Beardsley, Librarian, Swarthmore, Pa. The 
Library is accessible to all persons interested in the doctrines 
and history of Friends. 

The Reading Room is supplied with reference books, the 
leading literary, scientific, and technical journals, and the 
principal newspapers. 

Besides the above, the great collections of books in the 
Philadelphia Library, and its Ridgway Branch, the Mer- 
cantile Library, the Free Library of Philadelphia, and the 
University of Pennsylvania, as well as those in the special 
and technical libraries of the city, are open to the use of 
students under proper regulations. 


The Museum of the College is strictly an educational 
collection, and the specimens from its cases are in constant 
use in the lecture room and laboratory. It is growing 
steadily, and always in the direction of rendering more per- 
fect the means of illustrating the different departments of 
Biology and Geology. 

It includes the following collections: 

The Joseph Leidy Collection of Minerals, the result of 
thirty years' discriminating collection by its founder, con- 
sists of exceedingly valuable cabinet specimens of minerals, 
characteristic rocks and ores, and models of the various sys- 
tems of crystallization. 

2. The Collection Illustrating Comparative Osteology con- 
sists of a large series of partial and complete skeletons, pre- 
parer! at Prof. Henry Ward's Natural History Establishment 


in Rochester, N. Y., and illustrates the structure and frame- 
work of vertebrates. 

3. The Wilcox and Farnham Collection of Birds com- 
prises stuffed specimens of native and foreign birds. Nearly 
all the species visiting this State are represented. 

4. The Frederick Kohl Ethnological Collection consists of 
Indian implements, weapons, clothing, etc., mostly from 

5. The C. F. Parker Collection of Shells is made up of 
choice typical land, fresh-water, and marine shells. These 
specimens were all selected by the late Dr. Joseph Leidy 
from the extensive collection of the founder, C. F. Parker, 
who was for many years the Curator in charge of the Acad- 
emy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia. 

6. The Robert R. Corson Collection of Stalactites and 
Stalagmites is composed of specimens from the Luray 
Caverns, and illustrates the peculiar limestone formations of 
that and similar districts. 

7. The Eckfeldt Herbarium contains over two thousand 
specimens illustrating the flora of Pennsylvania. The 
Annie Shoemaker Collection is a valuable addition to this. 

In addition to the above, there is a large and constantly 
increasing collection of specimens of vertebrates and in- 
vertebrates (including the U. S. Fish Commission -Educa- 
tional Collection), of dissected specimens for demonstration 
in the lectures on Physiology, of glass and papier-mache 
models of invertebrates, and of special points in vegetable 
and animal morphology, besides some three hundred classi- 
fied diagrams and colored charts illustrating every branch 
of natural history. 

Students wto are unable to return to their homes for the Spring 
Vacation will be charged a proportionate amount for board at the 


The charge for board and tuition is $400 per year, of 
which $250 is payable in advance, and $150 on the first of 
First Month. 

The tuition fee of non-resident students is $150 per year, 
of which $125 is payable in advance, and the remainder on 
the first of First Month. When luncheon is taken with the 
resident students there is an additional charge to non-resi- 
dents of $50 per year. 

The College is closed during the Christmas Recess. 
Students who desire to remain in Swarthmore or its vicinity 
at that time may secure board at moderate charge in homes 
recommended by the Faculty. 

Students purchase their own books, which the College 
will furnish at the lowest rates obtainable. They also buy 
their own stationery and drawing implements, and pay a 
reasonable rate for laundry work done at the College. 

A fee of three dollars per semester is charged in every 
laboratory science, except in Chemistry; in Chemistry the 
fee is proportioned to the quantity of materials consumed. 

In case of illness, no extra charge is made unless a 
physician or trained nurse is employed. 

Payments are to be made by check or draft to the order 
of Charles M. Biddle, Treasurer, 513 Commerce Street, 



The Joshua Lippincott Fellowship, founded by 
Howard W. Lippincott, A. B., of the Class of 1875, in mem- 



ory of his father, consists of a fund yielding an income of 
$450 per year, which is granted annually by the Faculty, 
with the concurrence of the Instruction Committee, to a 
graduate of the College to enable him to pursue advanced 
study under the direction or with the approval of the 

The LucRETiA MoTT Fellowship, founded by the 
Somerville Literary Society, and sustained by the contribu- 
tions of its members, yields an annual income of $525. It 
is awarded each year by a Committee of the Faculty (se- 
lected by the Society), with the concurrence of the Life 
Members of the Society, to a young woman graduate of that 
year, who is to pursue advanced study at some other institu- 
tion approved by this Committee.

None will be awarded to applicants who fail to be admitted 
without condition to the Freshman class, and every holder 
of such scholarship must pursue in College the studies 
leading regularly to the degree of Bachelor of Arts. 

6. The three scholarships named below are offered for 
work done in the College in 1902- 1903. They are of the 
value of $200 each for resident, and $100 each for non- 
resident students, and are awarded in each instance to that

be awarded to a member of the Junior class. 

b. The Samuel J. Underhill Scholarship will be 
awarded to a member of the Sophomore class. 

c. The Anson Lapham Scholarship will be awarded 
to a member of the Freshman class. 


7, The twenty-six scholarships named below are offered 
to the students needing pecuniary aid, whose previous work 
has demonstrated their earnestness and their ability. About 
one-fourth of them will be available for new students for 
the year 1903-1904. They will be awarded at the discretion 
of the Committee on Trusts, Endowments, and Scholar- 
ships. Application should be made to the President of the

Graduates of Friends' Schools and of public High 
Schools approved by the Faculty and Instruction Commit- 
tee will be admitted to the Freshman Class on certificate of 
the Principal, but this privilege does not secure in every 
case admission without condition. 


Students admitted by certificate are received on trial, 
and the Faculty reserves the right to change their classifica- 
tion or to decline to continue their connection with the 
College, if they are found not properly prepared. The 
privilege of sending students on certificate may be with- 
drawn from any school whose pupils are found to be 

Principals of other schools who wish to have students 
admitted on their recommendation, should correspond with 
the President concerning each applicant. 

The College will accept for admission the certificates 
issued by the College Entrance Examination Board which 
was organized in 1899 by the Association of Colleges and 
Preparatory Schools of the Middle States and Maryland. 
Information as to the examinations held by this Board may 
be obtained from its secretary. Professor T. S. Fiske, Station 
84, New York City. 


After Commencement in 1903, the degree of Bachelor 
of Arts alone will be conferred for the completion of the un- 
dergraduate course.* This course is based upon uniform re- 
quirements for admission, and upon certain studies which 
are prescribed for all matriculates. In addition to securing 
this fundamental uniformity, it provides for the varied needs 
and capacities of individuals by permitting a wide range of 
selection on the part of the student or his advisers; and it 
seeks, also, to provide a thorough training, extending over 
three or four years, in some one department of study. 

Candidates for graduation are required to complete one 
hundred and twenty "hours," in addition to the prescribed 
Physical Training. An "hour" signifies one recitation or 
lecture per week throughout one college semester, or its 
equivalent. A recitation or lecture is regularly fifty-five 
minutes in length, and the outside work of the student is es- 
timated at an average of two hours for each class exercise. 
In laboratory work, each exercise is two hours in length, 
and the outside work is designed to make the exercise as 
nearly as possible equivalent in its demands to the "hour" 
defined above. A student's regular work during each 
semester is fifteen "hours." Thus in regular course the 
work of eight semesters constitutes the minimum amount — 
one hundred and twenty "hours" — for graduation. 

The distribution of the work is as follows : 

I. Prescribed studies. These studies must be taken by 
all students who are candidates for graduation, unless per- 
mission to substitute some other work is obtained, for spe-

cial reasons, from the proper Faculty committee. It is best 
to devote the whole of the Freshman year to five of the pre- 
scribed studies; but the time and order in which they are 
taken may vary according to the needs of each student. 
The prescribed work, amounting to forty-two "hours," ex- 
clusive of the Physical Training, includes the following 

1. English. — Nine "hours," three of which must be 
taken in English Composition, and six in English Literature 
or Public Speaking. 

2. Greek, Latin, French, German. — Twelve "hours," all 
of which may be done in any one of these languages, or six 
"hours" in each of two.

IL Major study. Every candidate for graduation is 
required to select the work of some one department as his 
major study. In most cases the selection may well be post- 
poned until the beginning of the second year. In the de- 
partment thus chosen the student must complete three full 
years of college work, or eighteen "hours," and the pro- 
fessor in charge may at his option determine the work of 
six years, or thirty-six "hours," providing one year shall 


not be in his own department. If the major study is one 
of the languages, at least one year of the prescribed work 
must be taken in another language from that chosen as the 
major study. No matter how much credit may have been 
given on entrance, no student is allowed to graduate who 
has not had in the College at least one year in his major 

III. Elective studies. The remaining work required 
for graduation may be selected from any department or 
departments of the College. 

The following studies are open to election, in so far 
as the exigences of the College programme will permit : 

Astronomy, History of Art, 

Bible Study, History of Religion, 

Biology, Latin, 

Chemistry, Mathematics, 

Economics, Philosophy, 

Engineering, Physics, 

English, Politics, 

French, Psychology, 

Geology, Public Speaking, 

German, Social Science, 

Greek, Studio Work, 

History, World Literature. 


Irregular courses of study, not including in due propor- 
tion the prescribed, major, and elective, studies, may be 
pursued only in special cases and by approval of the Faculty. 


Teachers, and other persons of sufficiently mature age, 
who may wish to devote themselves to one or more particu- 


lar studies, will be received without examination, and will 
be permitted to elect such studies as they may be able to 
pursue to advantage in any of the regular classes. 


In the departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, 
work is planned to prepare students for the study of medi- 
cine. Several leading Medical Schools of Philadelphia and 
elsewhere will admit to the second year of their courses 
students who present, with their diplomas, satisfactory cer- 
tificates of undergraduate work equivalent to the first year of 
the medical course. Students who desire to take advantage 
of this arrangement should confer with the professors in 
charge of the departments of science not later than the end 
of their Sophomore year. 


Bachelor of Arts. The degree of Bachelor of Arts 
will be conferred, at the Commencement in 1903 and annu- 
ally thereafter, upon students who have complied with the 
requirements for graduation as stated above. Until 1874 
this degree was the only baccalaureate degree conferred by 
the College, and will be the only one conferred after the 
Commencement in 1903.* The degree of Bachelor of Let- 
ters, or Bachelor of Science, will be conferred at the Com- 
mencement in 1903 upon those members of the present 
Senior Class who prefer such degree and are entitled to it in 
accordance with the former undergraduate courses. 

The Master's Degree. All candidates for the Mas- 
ter's Degree (A.M., M.L., and M. S.) must have taken 
the corresponding Bachelor's Degree at this College. They 
are required to pursue a course of study at Swarthmore, or 
elsewhere, under the direction of the Faculty, and to pass 
examination on the same. Graduates residing at the Col- 
lege may reasonably hope to complete the work in one year ; 
non-residents, engaged in other work, must devote to it not 
less than two years. Courses of study will be assigned to 
candidates upon application to the Faculty stating the sub- 
ject, or subjects, which they desire to pursue. A fee of $5 
is charged when the course of study is assigned, and an 
additional fee of $20 when the degree is conferred. 

The examinations for the Master's Degree will be both 
oral and written, and will be conducted by a committee of 
the Faculty. An extended thesis, bearing upon some part 
of the work assigned, will be required in all cases. The

page 58. 



candidate should apply to the Registrar for a more detailed 
statement of the requirements. 

The Engineering Degrees. The Degrees of Civil 
Engineer (C.E.), Mechanical Engineer (M.E.), and Elec- 
trical Engineer (E.E.), will be conferred upon graduates 
of Swarthmore College who have made Engineering their 
major study, who have been engaged for not less than three 
years in successful professional practice in positions of re- 
sponsibility, and who have pursued prescribed courses of 
reading and presented acceptable theses upon subjects per- 
taining to their branch of Engineering. Candidates for 
these Degrees should apply to the Registrar for a more de- 
tailed statement of the requirements. The same fees are 
charged as for the Master's Degree. 



Spencer Trotter, Professor 

The courses in Biology are designed to give a broad 
and liberal view of the facts and problems of life as a part 
of the system of general culture. Though of especial value 
in preparation for the medical profession, the profession of 
teaching, and for various fields of commercial activity, a 
knowledge of the general principles of Biology enables the 
man or woman to appreciate more fully the conditions of 
the individual and social life. The method of work aims 
to awaken an interest rather than to equip the student as a 
specialist. Those who desire to specialize in Biology after 
leaving College will find that these courses lead to the more 
technical studies of the University. 

The courses in Biology embrace the subjects of Zo- 
ology and Botany; Mammalian and Human Anatomy; 
Physiology ; Vertebrate Morphology, and Normal Histology. 
Three years of three hours per week in Course I, and six 
hours per week in Courses H and HI is the total amount 
of time involved. 

Course I. (o) Elements of Zoology. — Lectures and 
laboratory work covering the practical study of the main 
types of animal life and the consideration of the problems of 
distribution, environment, heredity, structure, function, and 
development. First semester, two hours. 

{h) Elements of Botany. — Lectures and laboratory 
work, including the examination of the tissues of the plant, 
and the consideration of the physiology of cell-life and of 



plant morphology. Lectures on Economic Botany. Second 
semester, two hours. 

(c) Elements of Physiology. — Lectures, demonstra- 
tions, and laboratory work in animal and human physiology. 
One hour per week throughout the year. 

Course I involves a knowledge of the use of the micro- 
scope in Zoology, Botany, and Physiology. 

Course IL Mammalian and Human Anatomy. — 
Dissection of the cat as a type, including studies in oste- 
ology, myology, visceral anatomy, the blood vessels, brain, 
and nervous structures. Detailed study of the human 
skeleton and the various structures of the human body in 
comparison with those of the lower animals. Text book: 
Anatomy of the Cat, Reighard and Jennings. Reference 
books: Jayne's Mammalian Anatomy; Gray's Human 
Anatomy. Six hours per week throughout the year, carry- 
ing a credit of three hours for each semester. 

Course IIL Advanced Work in one or more of the 
following subjects: Vertebrate Morphology; Physi- 
ology; Normal Histology; Botany. Arrangements as 
to subjects, time, books, etc., to be made with the pro- 
fessor. Six hours per week throughout the year, carrying a 
credit of three hours for each semester. 

Course IV. Geology. — A study and practical ex- 
amination of all the important types of rocks; lectures and 
recitations on structural, dynamic, and historical geology. 
Special features of the geology of the United States from 
an economic standpoint; construction of map. Open to all 
students above the Freshman class. Two hours for each 

The work of the Biological Department is mainly that 
of the laboratory; lectures, demonstrations, and text-books 


are used in connection with the laboratory work. In 
Courses I and IV the method of recitation is largely em- 
ployed. Collateral reading is assigned, and short essays on 
various subjects are required from time to time. It is 
hoped that students will interest themselves in independent 
field observations and in the collection of specimens for 
study in the laboratory. 

The Swarthmore College Museum is an adjunct to the 
Department of Biology. An account of its collections may 
be found on pages 31-32. 

The Academy of Natural Sciences, Logan Square, Phila- 
delphia, affords valuable matter for study and reference, both 
in its collections and library. 


Gellert Alleman, Professor 

The successful completion of the courses in Chemistry 
will enable the student to enter upon post-graduate work at 
any leading university, or will be of material assistance to 
him in various technical pursuits in which he may be en- 
gaged. Those intending to prepare for the medical pro- 
fession will find it advantageous to follow several of the 
elementary courses here offered. 

Course I. General Inorganic Chemistry. Lectures, 
demonstrations, written exercises and individual laboratory 
practice on the general principles involved in elementary 
chemistry. This course includes work similar to that out- 
lined in Remsen's College Chemistry. Laboratory Experi- 
ments, by Remsen and Randall, is followed as a laboratory 
guide; either Remsen's College Chemistry or Smith's Richter's 
Inorganic Chemistry, is used as a book of reference. Re- 
quired of all students who select Chemistry as their pre- 
scribed science. Two lectures, and one laboratory period 


of two hours per week, throughout the year, equivalent to

man is essential. Required of all students who select Chem- 
istry as their major subject. Three hours for each semester. 

Course VIII. Engineering Chemistry. Lectures and 
demonstrations. Considerable attention is devoted to a dis- 
cussion of the chemical aspects of the Materials of Construc- 
tion. Particular reference is made to the various chemical 
problems incident to the manufacture of Natural and Port- 
lanfl cement; the manufacture of steel; the chemical treat- 
ment of timbers, to insure them against decay; various prob- 
lems which are of importance in connection with the selec- 


tion of building stones; the modern treatment of sewage; 
water supply, and filtration. Twenty lectures, illustrated by 
lantern views. One hour, for one semester. This course 
is intended especially for students of Engineering, but is 
open as an elective to all students. 


Wilbur M. Stine, Professor 
Henry N. Benkert, Assistant 
Thomas W. Heslin, Assistant 

The course in Engineering is designed to afford a 
thorough general training for students who intend to 
engage in the profession of Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical 

The location of the College is most favorable for en- 
gineering students ; the ready access to Philadelphia and to 
the important manufacturing cities in the vicinity affords 
opportunities for instructive visits to a great variety of 
industrial and engineering works. 

The course of instruction in both the theory and practice 
of Engineering is arranged with the view of furnishing to 
its graduates a liberal preparation for immediate usefulness 
in the office, works, or field, in more or less subordinate 
positions. By adding familiarity with commercial demands 
and practices to the theory and practice of the school, they 
may successfully undertake the design of machinery, the 
superintendence of works, or the conduct of engineering 

The instruction is given both by lectures and recita- 
tions; and in the exercises in field, shop, laboratory, and 
draughting-room there is constant opportunity for individual 
instruction. Throughout the entire course the student is 
familiarized with the methods and processes of the Mechanic 
Arts by systematic instruction both in wood and metal 


working. The object is to avoid mere manual routine in 
such exercises, and to make them a means for the develop- 
ment of the powers of observation and judgment, as well as 
for the acquisition of mechanical skill. 

The Held equipment of the department is ample for 
practice in surveying and locations, and opportunity is given 
the student to become familiar with the use and adjustment 
of the apparatus. 

The Draughting Rooms are large, well-lighted, and 
furnished with adjustable tables, models, etc., and are open 
for work during the greater part of the day. 

The Engineering Laboratory contains a ten-horse- 
power vertical steam engine, an Olsen's testing machine, 
arranged for tensile, compressive, and transverse tests, 
steam engine indicators, apparatus for hydraulic and steam 
engine experiments, and other valuable instruments and 

A friend of the College has recently presented an Olsen 
screw-gear testing machine to the Laboratory. This 
machine has an ultimate capacity of 100,000 pounds for 
tension and compression tests. Other additions to the 
equipment are micrometers for tension, compression, and 
deflection strains ; and attachments to the smaller Olsen 
machine for testing specimens of cement. 

Shop Work. This portion of the work holds an 
important place in the general engineering course, being 
pursued through the first three years. It is not desired to 
impart the skill of the trained workman, but rather to lay 
a foundation in the elements of shop practice upon which 
mature judgment and observation may establish successful 

The course in woodzvorking covers instruction in join- 


ing, framing, and woodturning. This preliminary work is 
followed by the elements of pattern making. 

The work in forging is based on a set of exercises 
involving drawing, bending, upsetting, welding, and tem- 
pering. This course is followed by a short one in foundry 

Machine practice is pursued through two years of the 
course. During the first year, practice is given in bench 
and vise work, followed by lathe work, and exercises on 
the planer, shaper, and universal milling machine. The 
various exercises also involve tapping, screw-cutting, and 
work to standard gauges. 

During the second year, after completing the design 
and draft of a machine, such as a lathe, small pump, or 
engine, the project is completely constructed, affording the 
student some experience in shop construction. 

The Machine Shop contains an excellent assortment of 
tools, including screw-cutting engine lathes, speed lathes 
(simple and back geared), an iron planer, a complete uni- 
versal milling machine, a set of milling cutters, a shaper, 
a twist-drill grinder, upright drills, an emery grinder, a 
mill grinder, lathe centre grinder, vises (plain and swivel), 
lathe chucks (combination, independent, scroll, and drill), 
a milling machine chuck, a rotary planer chuck, planer 
centres, a set of Bett's standard gauges, surface plates 
(Brown & Sharpe), sets of twist drills, reamers, mandrels, 
screw plates, taps and dies, a complete set of steam fitters' 
tools, with pipe vise, ratchet drill, etc., together with the 
many necessary small tools, hammers, chisels, files, etc. 
Additions are constantly being made to this collection as 
they are needed, either by manufacture in the shops or by 
purchase. Power is furnished by a lo x 24 Corliss steam 
engine and a sixty horse power return tubular boiler, the 


former fitted with an improved indicator, and the latter 
with the necessary attachments for determining its effi- 
ciency, etc. 

The Woodworking Shop contains benches with vises 
and sets of woodworking tools, grindstone, and wood- 
turning lathes. 

The Smith Shop contains forges, anvils, and sets of 
blacksmith tools, bench, and vise. 

The Foundry contains a brass furnace, moulders' 
benches, a variety of patterns, and full sets of moulders'

English Literature 

The course in English Literature aims to give a sym- 
pathetic acquaintance with the great authors, from the 
Anglo-Saxon period to the present. 

The following Courses are offered : 

Course I. Introductory lectures on Greek and 
Roman mythology and literature. Essays of Lamb and 
Emerson; poetry of Wordsworth, Scott, Shelley, Keats, 
Tennyson, Browning, and Whittier. Lectures. Three 
hours for each semester. 

Course IL The Religious Drama; Marlowe; Lodge's 
Rosalynde; selected plays of Shakespeare; Milton; minor 
poets and essayists of seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. 
Lectures on Elizabethan and following periods. Private 
readings and reports throughout the year. Three hours for 
each semester. 

Course IIL Representative authors from Chaucer to 
Arnold. Offered to Sophomores who are taking Engineer- 
ing as a major subject. Two hours for each semester. 

Course IV. Anglo-Saxon: Sweet's Primer; Beowulf. 
Lectures on the development of the language. Chaucer: 
Spenser. Lectures on the Transition and Middle English 
periods. Three hours for each semester. 

Course V. Studies in special periods of English and 
American literature. Development of the Essay and of 


Lyric and Nature poetry. Literary biography. Specimens 
of Friends' classics. 

During the year each student will make a particular study 
of the life, writings, and influence of two assigned authors. 
Three hours for each semester. 

Course VL World Literature. This is a course in 
the study of great classics, other than English, belonging to 
ancient and modern literature. The first semester is de- 
voted mainly to Homer — the Iliad and the Odyssey — and to 
the Greek Drama; the second semester mainly to Dante. 
The course is conducted through the medium of standard 
English translations, together with lectures by the in- 
structor, and oral discussions and written abstracts by the 
students. Three hours for each semester. 

An English Seminar will be held for the study of literary 
questions and of the work of chosen contemporary authors; 
open to advanced students. 

The College Library is well equipped with works in 
literature, biography, and criticism — chiefly through the 
generous gift of the late Edgar Allen Brown of the class of 


Practice in clear and ready expression. Critical study 
of the diction and style of representative English and Amer- 
ican authors. Study of invention and versification; writing 
of theses. Lectures and illustrative readings. 

Public Speaking 

Course L Declamation. The aim of the course is to 
acquire purity, flexibility, and strength of voice, and an 
easy, natural manner in reading the different forms of litera- 
ture. Students are required to commit selected passages, 


which they recite before the class. The classes are organ- 
ized in small sections, so that the students may have the 
personal criticisms of the instructor. 

Course II. Oratory. In this course the masterpieces 
of modern oratory are studied as models for original ora- 
tions, while the best passages are committed and used as a 
drill in acquiring a natural and effective delivery. 

During a part of the year students are required to give 
each week, an extemporaneous talk on subjects assigned in 
advance. Each student in the course is required to write 
and deliver four orations. 

Course III. Argumentation. For the first few weeks 
of this course the instructor presents the theory of argumen- 
tation, after which students have weekly practice in debate, 
written arguments, and the drawing of briefs. Elective for 
students who have completed Courses I and 11. 

Course IV. Interpretation. The purpose of the course 
is to acquire the best possible expression of the literature 
studied. After learning the spirit of the author and of his 
time, an attempt is made to give his writings such expres- 
sion as will reveal the thought and emotion for which the 
words are but signs. The course covers the field of Amer- 
ican literature; one writer being studied each week. Two 
plays of Shakespeare are also studied. Elective for students 
who have completed Public Speaking I and English Litera- 
ture I. 

Oratorical Associations and Prizes 

The Swarthmore College Oratorical Association con- 
ducts an annual contest, open to all students, the winner 
in which represents the College in the annual contest of 
the Pennsylvania Inter-Collegiate Oratorical Association. 

The Presidenfs Prize of fifty dollars is contested for by 


representatives of the Sophomore and Freshman Classes, 
and invested in some permanent memento of the successful 
class for presentation to the College. 

The Delta Upsilon Prise of twenty-five dollars is com- 
peted for in the College Oratorical contest. 

The Sproul Testimonial of twenty-five dollars, ofifered by 
Hon. William C. Sproul, of the Class of 1891, is awarded 
in an oratorical contest open to members of the Junior Class. 

Prizes for extemporaneous speaking: two prizes of 
twenty-five dollars each, one contested for by the young men 
and one by the young women, have been offered during the 
last four years by a friend of the College. 

The Hicks Testimonial of fifteen dollars, given annually 
by Frederick Cocks Hicks, of the Class of 1893, is contested 
for by members of the Eunomian Literary Society. 

The Underzvood-Ponder Testimonial, a silver cup given 
by William G. Underwood, of the Class of 1887, and James 
W. Ponder, of the Class of 1890, is annually contested for 
by the literary societies of the College. 


Edward H. Magill, Professor Emeritus and Lecturer 
IsABELLE Bronk, Professor 

The aim of the instruction in this department is to af- 
ford a high degree of literary culture, as well as to impart 
thorough training in the grammar and linguistics of the 
language. Until the middle of the second year, the authors 
studied are all selected from those of modern times, and the 
greatest attention is given to colloquial French. The stu- 
dent is then ready to be brought into contact with the more 
artificial (rhetorical) forms of expression constantly oc- 


curring in the higher grades of literature. The fact that 
French is a Hving tongue is kept ever in view. For this 
reason but little English is used in the class-room. 

In the later years a series of lectures is given on the 
more prominent French writers. In these lectures, the 
biographical element purposely receives especial attention; 
no attempt is made at exhaustive treatment, but the aim is 
to make the student familiar with the leading works of the

Benjamin F. Battin, Professor 

The course of study in this department is designed to 
afford grammatical and linguistic training, and (for those 
who have not had a full classical course) a degree of literary 
culture. It brings the student into touch with the char- 
acter and genius of the German people. 

Emphasis is laid upon the relations of- the German to 
the English and to the classical languages; upon etymology 
and syntax; and upon social conditions and political events. 
The courses, however, are literary rather than historical and 

In the class-room, translation into English is discon- 
tinued as soon as possible and expressive reading of the 
German text is substituted; the students begin early to use 
the German in recitations. The idiomatic sentence and 
modern colloquial language form the basis of the work in 
composition. Reading and translating at sight are cul- 

Other texts may at times be substituted for some of 
those indicated. 

Course I. Thomas's Practical German Grammar, Part 
I; Grimm's Mdrchen (twelve selections); Eichendorff's Ans 
dem leben eines Taugenichts (Chapters VII and VIII 
omitted) ; E. S. Buchheim's Elementary Prose Composition, 
Part I; Schiller's Wilhelm Tell (first three acts). Three 
hours for each semester. 

This course is for those who have had no preliminary 
training in German; it presupposes a discipline of several 
years' language work in Latin and French; and prepares for 
progressive and independent work. It aims to give a 
definite knowledge of German grammar; an ability to under- 
stand spoken German, to converse during the recitation, to 


summarize in German the topics discussed in class, to write 
easy German, to acquire a correct pronunciation, and to 
memorize simple lyrics. 

Course II. Thomas's Practical German Grammar (re- 
viewed and continued) ; Schiller's Wilhelm Tell (completed) ; 
one of Riehl's Cultiirgeschichtliche Novellen; Freytag's Die 
Journalisten; Goethe's Iphigenia auf Tauris; E. S. Buch- 
heim's Elementary Prose Composition (Parts II and III); Ger- 
man ballads and lyrics (seven to be memorized). Lectures 
in German on literary characters and social conditions. 
Three hours for each semester. 

This course will prepare students to read such Ger- 
man text-books as may be used in the scientific and literary 

Course III. Schiller's Wallenstein (ed. Carruth); 
Heine's Harsreise; Freytag's Aus dem Staat Friedrichs des 
Grossen. Lectures in German on the history of German 
Literature. Private reading: Selections from Sherer's His- 
tory of German Literature; Nevinson's Life of Schiller. Ger- 
man Prose Composition, using texts and free composition. 
Three hours for each semester. 

Course IV. Goethe's Dichtung und Wahrheit; Les- 
sing's Nathan der Weise; Freytag's Doktor Luther; Kleist's 
Der Prins Friedrich von Hamburg; Grillparzer's Sappho. 
Private reading: Sime's Life of Goethe; Gerstacker's 
Irrfahrten. Lectures on Goethe. Free Prose Composi- 
tion. This course is conducted in German. Three hours 
for each semester. 

Courses III and IV presuppose a systematic knowledge 
of the grammar and the ability to converse readily. The 
students present summaries in German of the texts read and 
oral discussions of assigned topics. 


Course V. (1902-1903.) (a.) History of the Ger- 
man Drama. (6.) German Scientific Readings, (c.) Ger- 
man Lyrics and Ballads. Three hours for each semester. 

Course V. (1903-1904.) This course is for those in- 
tending to teach German. The method is largely that of the 
seminar. The grammar is studied from the pedagogical 
standpoint; lectures are given by the students, on the gram- 
mar and on literary or social topics. Methods of German 
literary criticism are studied as well as prose and verse com- 
position. This course is conducted entirely in German, 
and the number of students is limited. 

The Detitscher Verein meets once a week for conversa- 
tion and social enjoyment. 

International Correspondence : Students who desire it are 
given an opportunity to carry on, under direction, corre- 
spondence with students in German institutions.

Wm. I. Hull, History 

GusTAv A. Kleene, Economics and Politics 

The group of studies included within this department is 
designed to cultivate an interest in social problems of the 
past and the present, to furnish information necessary 
for intelligent citizenship, and to provide a preliminary 
training for those who intend to engage in the practice of 
law, journalism, business, charitable work, or the public 

The work is conducted by means of lectures, text-books, 
and collateral reading, and oral and written reports by the 
students on assigned topics. A Historico-Political Con- 
ference meets at frequent intervals for the purpose of re- 
viewing books and discussing topics germane to the work 
of the department; the work of the Conference is conducted 
by the instructors, and by the students making History, or 
Economics and Politics, their major subject. A series of 
visits are made to neighboring points of historic interest, 
and to mercantile, charitable, and correctional institutions 
in the vicinity.

Harriet Sartain, Lecturer and Director of Studio 

These courses aim to develop artistic appreciation by 
familiarizing the student with the finest works of art and 
the principles which govern their production. 

Instruction is given by illustrated lectures, which ex- 
tend over a period of two years and trace the development 
of art from the earliest historical epoch. Recitation, col- 
lateral reading, and critical analysis of the illustrative mate- 
rials, will be required.

Freehand Drawing and Painting 

These courses are distinct from the courses in the His- 
tory of Art, although they may be combined with advantage 
if desired. In training the hand and leading to habits of 
close observation, they are an important adjunct to the 
courses in Physical Science. Instruction is altogether indi- 
vidual, being adapted to the special needs of each student, 
but the following order of work must be observed : 

Course III. Studio Work. Charcoal and pencil draw- 
ing from geometric objects, still life, and casts (ornament,

Jesse H. Holmes, Professor 

This department aims to give the student an intro- 
duction to the principal religious and philosophical systems 
of the world, together with a study more in detail of a few 
of them. The courses offered as electives cover three years. 
All students are required to take a course of a half year 
in the study of the Bible. 

I, Bible Study. Required of all students. It is in- 
•tenflcd to give such general knowledge of the Bible, its 


origin, contents, and qualities as literature, as should be 
possessed by all intelligent people. The work of the stu- 
dent will consist largely of indicated readings in the Old 
and New Testaments. The class work will include lec- 
tures, recitations, study of maps, pictures, etc. 

One-half year, three hours per week. The course will 
probably be extended through the year without increasing 
the number of hours. 

II. History of Religions. An introduction to the 
study of the principal religions of the East. 

One-half year (Second semester), three hours per week. 

III. The Religion of the Hebrews. The close rela- 
tion existing between the ancient Hebrew religion and 
Christianity gives the former a special importance. This 
course includes a detailed study of the history of the 
Hebrews, their social and religious customs, their prophets, 
and their literature. It is based upon the study of the books 
of the Old Testament, Kent's History of the Hebrews being 
used to direct such study. In the early part of the study 
attention is given to the origin of the Semites and their 
early movements. Babylonia, Assyria, and other allied 

One-half year (First semester), three hours per week. 

IV. The Origin of Christianity. A study of the social, 
political, and religious conditions prevailing at the beginning 
of the Christian era, followed by the life, work, and teaching 
of Jesus and the Apostolic age of the Christian church.

used, together with Rhee's Life of Jesus and some con- 
venient text-book dealing with the career of the Apostle 

One-half year (Second semester), three hours per week. 


V. Psychology. An elementary study of the physi- 
ology of the brain and organs of special sense, followed 
by an inquiry into states of consciousness. James's Psy- 
chology (Briefer Course) is used as a text-book. It is 
supplemented by reviews of important books on various 
phases of the subject, by preparation of specially assigned 
topics, by experiment, and by lectures. 

One-half year (First semester), three hours per week. 

VI. History of Philosophy. After a brief introductory 
glance at the early Greek philosophies especial attention is 
given to Socrates and the systems of Plato and Aristotle. 
Some attention is given to the movements of human thought 
in the period centering about the Christian era, the growth, 
culmination, and decline of scholasticism, are studied, and 
the appearance of the modern critical spirit. Special atten- 
tion will be given to the evolutionary philosophy. 

One year, three hours per week. 

The work of each course will be varied by lectures, 
recitations, and preparation of special themes. Several 
hundreds of lantern slides illustrating various phases of 
the subject-matter are available, as are also charts, maps, 
pictures, and a carefully-selected library. Some of the 
greatest archaeological collections of the world are near 
enough to be made use of, and visits to museums, exhibi- 
tions, etc., are frequently possible. Lectures by the greatest 
scholars of the world are often within reach and are brought 
to the attention of students. 


Ferris W. Price, Professor 
Mary Corwin Lane, Assistant 

The work in Latin includes : 

I. The regular consecutive courses of the four college 


years. These, in connection with the Greek and other allied 
studies, are believed to constitute, now as in the past, one of 
the most important means of intellectual discipline and of 
general culture, and to be an excellent preparation for useful 
and intelligent life in any of its fields. 

II. A special beginners' course for students who have 
done little or no previous work in Latin. This course was 
established in the belief that every educated man or woman, 
whatever his vocation, should know something at least of 
Latin. Further, it is intended to supplement and strengthen 
the linguistic knowledge gained from the study of modern 
languages, to give some conception of the intimate connec- 
tion between the institutions and life of the present day and 
those of the ancient Romans, and especially to serve the 
needs of students who expect to enter the professions of law 
and medicine. 

Sight reading and other collateral work are required in 
all the courses. 

The Latin department is provided with the usual equip- 
ment of books of reference, texts, maps, photographs ; and 
of these constant use is made. 

There is an especial effort made to supplement the regu- 
lar readings, and grammatical and philological drill, with 
references to the life, manners, and achievements of the won- 
derful race whose literature is being studied. As far as pos- 
sible, these are brought into some comprehensible relation 
with our modern life, and given a reality and value as guides 
in understanding and solving present-day problems. 

The courses in detail are as follows : 

Course I. Cicero, Letters (selections) ; Latin Com- 
position based on Cicero's Letters; Horace, Odes and 
Epodes; Mythology. Open to students who offer ele- 


mentary and advanced Latin for admission. See page 38. 
Three hours for each semester. 

Course II. Horace, Satires and Epistles; Livy, Books 
I, XXI, XXII; History of Latin Literature; lectures with 
illustrative readings from the most important authors. 
Open to students who have completed Course I. Three 
hours for each semester. 

Course III. Inscriptions and other remains of early 
Latin; Plautus, Trimmimus and Captivi; Terence, Phormio; 
Cicero, one or more of the philosophical essays ; Hymns and 
other late Latin. Open to students who have completed 
Course II. Three hours for each semester. 

Course IV. Catullus, a brief course ; Tacitus, Agricola 
and Germania; Juvenal, four or five satires ; Lucretius and 
Pliny the Younger, selections. The second semester is de- 
voted to a study of Virgil, with special attention to the 
Georgics and to the last six books of the ^neid. Open to 
students who have completed Course III, and sometimes by 
special arrangement to those who have completed only 
Course II. Three hours for each semester. 

Course V. A rapid study of the essentials of Latin 
grammar, followed by the reading of a large number of 
selections from Latin authors of various periods. Emphasis 
is laid upon those features of the Latin language and of 
Roman life which are of especial interest to mature students, 
already familiar with French and German, and able to appre- 
ciate the deeper meaning of the literature read. This begin- 
ners' course is open to Juniors and Seniors who oflfered for 
entrance either no Latin or less than our elementary require- 
ment. Three hours for each semester. 

Course VI. Roman Archzeology — the topography, 
architecture, and remains of the ancient city. Open to all 


students who have completed Course I. Two hours for each 
semester. Offered in 1902-1903.

Course V by the practical study of the application of the 
electric current to the telephone, telegraph, dynamo, electric 
light, motor, transmission of power, etc. Work in the 
manufacture and use of these various appliances, as well as 
in the measurements of electrical quantities, is accompanied 
by text-book work and by reading and class-discussion of 
current electrical journals. Visits to the electrical plants 
of neighboring villages and cities are made at con- 
venient times, for the purpose of studying the machinery 
in actual use. Open to Seniors. Three hours for each

The system of Physical Training is based upon a thor- 
ough and careful examination of each student. The records 
of measurements and other tests afford a means of noting 
progressive development, and are, in large part, the basis 
upon which exercises are prescribed. Particular attention 
is given to all individuals whose physical development is 
below the normal, special work being prescribed for such, in 
order to produce, as far as possible, an evenly developed and 
healthy organism. 

All athletic sports are under the immediate supervision 
of the Directors, and only those students who are in proper 
physical condition are allowed to participate. Great care 
is also taken to keep games and athletic contests within such 
limits as will make them only a proper means of exercise 
and recreation, and thus of real assistance to the work of 
the College. 


Two hours of exercise per week for two years, in the 
gymnasium, are required of the men students. 

Six hours of exercise per week, two of which must be 
class-work in the gymnasium, are required of the women 
students throughout their residence at College.
